No-nightshade Amatriciana Sauce (Paleo/AIP), shown here atop spaghetti squash, is a flavorful sauce made with bacon and onions. No tomatoes or peppers!Jump to Recipe
Howdy, Paleo/AIP peeps! Here’s a little something from my heart to yours: No-nightshade Amatriciana Sauce.
Before I went AIP, I never thought that I, Lover of All Nightshades Everywhere, could be sensitive to them. Oh those glorious days of yore! How I loved tomatillo salsas, spicy anything, Ichiban eggplant, and tomato pasta sauces!
I had to create something for us that has (almost) the same taste as those sauces. If you’ve ever had my AIP Spaghetti Sauce, you know serious I am! And since we are now in times where food/meat supply is inconsistent, I wanted to created something with less meat in it.
About the pepper…
Amatriciana Sauce is a peppery sauce with bacon and onions. If you are in the elimination phase of AIP, leave out the black pepper (not a nightshade) until you have successfully re-introduced it. If you are fine with pepper, load up! I actually like more pepper than I’ve called for in the recipe, so trust your gut and use the amount that is right for you.
Stay well, my friends. As always, I’m wishing you much love and deep healing!
P.S. If you want this with roasted spaghetti squash, but don’t know how to do that, here’s my tutorial. 🙂 Besides spag squash, you can serve this sauce on sweet potato noodles, or zoodles (zucchini noodles). To make zoodles, I use an awesome little gadget called a Veggetti. It’s perfect for the job, and it goes in the dishwasher!
